I am a photographer based in Buffalo, NY passionate about creating a mixture of traditional and documentary-style wedding images that focus on genuine human connection, real moments and details that help tell a unique story. When portraits are needed, I'll provide lightly-guided poses for you with a more organic approach, resulting in images that are simple and timeless. And for the remainder of the day, I'll blend in to the background and document your moments as they happen naturally. At the end of the day, my goal is to provide joyful, heartfelt images that will bring you all the feels and be cherished by loved ones for generations to come.
If all of this speaks to you, I invite you to check out more of my work on my website (www.dawnmgibsonphotography.com), or say hello to get a conversation started!

I can not say enough good things about Dawn! Her passion for this shone through the entire day! She is not only a photographer, she was like a wedding concierge! She took care of anything I needed, from planning out a timeline for the entire day, to carrying my things all day, and making sure we left no stone un-turned! She was amazing! I highly highly recommend her!Sent on 02/24/2020

Dawn M Gibson Photography is unparalleled
My brother had Dawn photograph his wedding on a dreary, rainy fall day and my then-boyfriend (now husband!) and I were absolutely blown away with the photos. Dawn had posed people, brightened photos, and used who knows what other wizardry and technical skills to make the wedding photos some of the best that we had ever seen. We agreed then that if we wed we would surely use Dawn! Well, we got engaged a few years later and the first thing we did after choosing a date (before selecting a venue, bridal party, literally any vendors at all) was contact Dawn to make sure she was available. We likely would have changed our wedding date just to make sure we had the best photographer in WNY (and probably beyond that!). Now that we've gotten our photos back from our wedding, we absolutely love them and not just because it's from our special day. Dawn and her assistant photographer Brittany captured the best candid shots from so many of our guests, incredible and uniques portraits of the bride, groom, and bridal party, and spend the entire day alongside us in the most miserable heat and humidity until it rained (briefly). Dawn and Brittany were very creative, professional, and incredibly thorough in the photos they took as well as the entire planning process (including a timeline of the day at 5 minute intervals which I loved). If you're looking for the best photographer in WNY look no further, and maybe even consider flying her in to photograph your wedding if your not local because she might just be the best wedding photographer out there! No other wedding photographer we've seen can compare (and her consistent 5 star reviews show it!)Sent on 10/04/2019
